Vice President Kamala Harris assumed her role on the Biden ticket carrying a bunch of baggage. Her considerable political career in California is littered with the bodies of her victims — and some of those victims were children.
No doubt the Mainstream Media continually give the VP a free pass. After all, even though she’s NOT African-American (Her mother is Indian and her father Jamaican), she’s the first Vice President that is both female and “of color.”
Most Americans first noticed her political dark side during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings to confirm Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation. She was, by any measure, rude, obstinate, and downright ugly to the now-Supreme Court Justice. But that darkness had been with her quite a while before that. She was known as being ruthless to those who crossed her while she was California’s Attorney General. Her “rep” was she’d throw the book at those who opposed her politically while allowing people she liked to get away with just about anything.
When she was district attorney, Kamala Harris established a truancy court that prosecuted parents if their children missed school. Then, in 2010, Harris sponsored a state law that made truancy a criminal misdemeanor. As a result of the law, dozens of parents have been charged across California, and at least 2 parents have served jail time.
Some of the people who suffered from the truancy laws include chronically ill people and single mothers and parents of children who had been traumatized by perpetual bullying at schools.
Harris refused to investigate the police shootings of two Black men in 2014 and 2015. She also did not support a 2015 bill in the state assembly requiring the attorney general to appoint a special prosecutor specializing in police use of deadly force. But, of course, she changed her tune when in the U.S. Senate.
In video footage from 2013, Harris appears to mock those on the left who chanted reforms like “build schools, not jails” and “put more money into education, not prisons” Her response suggests that they are naive sloganeers who do not understand crime prevention. However, critics argue that this depicts that Harris was more interested in sending people to prison rather than looking at preemptive measures to reduce crime.
As district attorney and state attorney general, Harris led offices that criminal justice advocates say were overly aggressive in pursuing convictions and lacked transparency. She is alleged to have “fought tooth and nail to uphold wrongful convictions that were secured through official misconduct that included evidence tampering, false testimony and the suppression of crucial information by prosecutors.”
In 2015, lawyers for an inmate convicted of murder attempted to have the case thrown out after new evidence suggested that Riverside County prosecutors lied on the stand during the initial trial. Harris’s office, representing the state prison system, resisted, only backing down after footage of one of her deputies being eviscerated by three federal judges went viral.
Her past in California was just as vile.
Critics have alleged that Harris “slept her way to the top.” They highlight her relationship with Willie Brown, a powerhouse in California politics, who was 30 years older than Harris.
From his powerful position, Brown appointed Harris to the California Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board and the Medical Assistance Commission — positions that together paid her around $80,000 a year on top of her prosecutor’s salary.
Last year, Brown, who later became the Mayor of San Francisco, claimed that while dating Harris, he gave her powerful and influential appointments that furthered her political career. In a letter to the San Francisco Chronicle, Brown wrote,
“Yes, we dated. It was more than 20 years ago…Yes, I may have influenced her career by appointing her to two state commissions when I was Assembly speaker,”
“And I certainly helped with her first race for district attorney in San Francisco,”
“The difference is that Harris is the only one who, after I helped her, sent word that I would be indicted if I ‘so much as jaywalked’ while she was D.A.,” Brown wrote. “That’s politics for ya.”
The “National” Kamala Harris
Harris was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2017. As a Democrat and a woman of color, she garnered much attention and favor from her fellow Senate members. And she quickly found a place on the prestigious Senate Judiciary Committee.
Few remember details of her brief (and failed) 2019 campaign for the Democrat Party nomination to run against Donald Trump. Her public demeanor and somewhat nasty representation plagued her in the campaign. As a result, she struggled to relate to American voters who spotted her dark side quickly. Subsequently, she drew just minuscule numbers in the polls — even in California! After a shellacking by former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard in one national debate, Kamala dropped out of the race before January 1, 2020.
Many Democrats were aghast that she got the nod to join the Biden ticket. Speculation abounds as to her as the choice. Certainly, her skin color and gender weighed heavily in her becoming Biden’s running mate. (I may be silly, but isn’t that somewhat racist?)
But they won.
Vice President for the “Previous” Vice President
Upon becoming president, Joe Biden created a disaster at the nation’s southern border. He foolishly ordered an immediate halt to the construction of our border wall. Unfortunately, he also abandoned Trump administration policies that were clearly working. The result has been a massive increase in the number of illegal immigrants entering the United States.
This stampede of migrants has overwhelmed our resources at the border and created a true humanitarian catastrophe. To show he was taking action to deal with the problem, Biden appointed Vice President Kamala Harris to be his point person on the border crisis.
Even though he has selected crazed leftists for many of the positions in his administration, choosing Harris may have been his worst appointment. Harris is a total embarrassment who has never succeeded in any position throughout her political career.
As a presidential candidate, Harris departed the race early after a series of pathetic performances in debates. Her fundraising collapsed, and she exited several months before the first presidential caucus.
Biden rescued her from political obscurity when he chose her as his running mate. However, as the vice-presidential candidate, she failed to capture the imagination of voters and was fairly ineffective. In her only televised debate with her Republican opponent, Vice President Mike Pence, she was terrible and lost convincingly.
Her performance as vice president has been even worse, so it is mystifying why Biden would choose her for such an important role in dealing with the border crisis. In this position, she has been even worse than expected, acting in an arrogant, ill-informed manner that has only exacerbated the crisis.
For months, Harris has been dodging questions about whether she would visit the border. Eventually, the Biden administration morphed her mission into an investigation of the “root causes” of the border catastrophe. To further her investigation, she visited Guatemala and Mexico last week. To say it was an unmitigated disaster is an understatement. It was possibly the worst foreign trip for any United States vice president in modern history.
Her performance was so poor that even pro-Biden news outlets like CNN reported the White House was disappointed in the trip and “perplexed” by her statements. For example, in an interview with NBC news anchor Lester Holt, Harris seemed unprepared when he asked her about visiting the border. Her excuse was that she had not visited “Europe” either.
This answer was so poor that Meghan McCain of ABC’s The View commented that Harris “sounded like a moron” in the interview. McCain also noted that Harris seems to laugh whenever asked about the question. She remarked that her “nervous laugh is making me nervous that she doesn’t know what she’s doing.”
Sadly, she does not know what she is doing on any issue. Her incompetence was on display during her recent trip, where she clearly did not make any friends.
In Guatemala, the vice president was greeted by angry local residents who were upset that the Biden administration policies had worsened the problems in their country. Their signs read “Trump Won,” “Go Home” and “Kamala, Mind Your Own Business.”
The meeting with the President of Guatemala, Alejandro Giammattei, was not much better. He noted his disagreements with the Biden administration on the border crisis. In a CBS interview that aired right before the Vice President arrived, Giammattei criticized the Biden administration. He said, “We asked the United States government to send more of a clear message to prevent more people from leaving.” He also observed that he was “not on the same side of the coin” as the vice president on the issue of migration.
In her press conference with the Guatemalan leader, Harris stated that migrants should not come to the United States for asylum because they will be returned to their home country. She claimed that “The president and I discussed that fundamentally, most people do not want to leave home, they don’t want to leave the place where the language they know is spoken.”
Despite the challenges of traveling thousands of miles in dangerous conditions, the migrants continue to come to the United States because the Biden-Harris administration has created an open border. Along with stopping the construction of the border wall, the new administration ended President Donald Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy for asylum seekers. In addition, immigration court cases are being “fast-tracked” for families that recently crossed into the country from Mexico.
Illegal immigrants have viewed the Biden administration policies as a clear sign to enter the United States. The results are both catastrophic and predictable. According to United States Customs and Border Protection, over 178,000 illegal immigrants were apprehended at the border in April 2021. The influx is not stopping as the problem continues to explode.
As the person charged by the president to deal with this crisis, Harris has refused to visit the border and examine the problem personally. Even though she now claims that she will make the trek to the border at some point, the delay has been totally unacceptable. According to United States Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA), “I hope she does visit the southern border very, very soon. It is imperative. The longer she waits, the harder it is for her to explain why she hasn’t gone to view the crisis herself and form her own opinions about what’s going on.”
For Vice President Harris, there will be no escape from the border question until she visits. She was even questioned about it during participation at an LGBTQ pride parade.
Not only is her refusal to visit the border a major problem, but her lack of consistency is not helping matters. After telling migrants to stay home during her visit to Guatemala, she changed her tune in an interview on Friday with the Spanish news wire service EFE. Instead, she claimed that she was committed to providing a “haven for those seeking asylum.”
Vice President Kamala Harris is the epitome of both inconsistency and incompetence.
It is clear that her eyes are set on replacing Joe Biden in the White House: either running against a Republican opponent when Biden’s term is completed or should Biden step away for some reason. It’s also clear to most Americans that “Kalamity Kamala” is NOT qualified to become the Chief Executive of the U.S.
And even if she was qualified, her incessant “Hillary Clinton” cackle would certainly cost her votes from many Americans!
